YOU CAN INSULT ME

You can insult my country.
I am not my country.
But not my poetry.

You can insult my gender.
I am not my gender.
But not my metaphor.

You can insult my race.
I am not my race.
But not my book case.

You can insult my vocation.
I am not my vocation.
But not my radio station.

You can insult me, sweet and mild.
But not my Oscar Wilde.

    You can insult my music.
    I am not my music.
    But not my Ween.

      Thanks, I didn’t know that one! Has any other pop band been so eclectic?

        Always good to share the Ween! One of my favorite songs by them:

        Oh gosh, off the top of my head I can’t think of anyone matching their eclecticism. But I’d put the band Of Montreal in the same category of awesomeness, aka Talented Meets Full-Time F*cking Weird.

      Yes, there are many interesting “young” bands that don’t get the publicity that bands got decades ago from record companies: Of Montreal, Spiritualized, Belle and Sebastian, Sun Kil Moon are some of them…. I’m old, but I had a 20-something friend who gave me recordings of a bunch of these bands — otherwise I’d have never heard of them….
